Community Pathways Waiver Amendment #1 - Proposal

Program Capacity Changes

Purpose:

Update program capacity by adjusting projections for the number of unduplicated participant based on current trends, new reserved capacity, and legislative appropriation to support new participants each year.

Overview:

In 2013, the state projected the number of programs participants based on previous trends and anticipated legislative appropriation to support new participants each year. An individual that enters, exists, and re-enters the waiver during one waiver year count as one unduplicated waiver participant. Trends demonstrate individuals are leaving the waiver due to various reasons including: voluntary leaving services or never having started services; entering an institution (e.g. hospital, SETT, MHA facility); moving to another state; being incarcerated; and loosing financial eligibility. The change to capacity will not impact current participants and no current waiver participants will be removed from the program. Individuals that leave the waiver program may reapply during the waiver year that they left.
